control, and tax hikes. you notice anything missing? bob cusak and sabrina says democrats are embolden this time and spending cuts last on the list. bob, first to you. bob, the president is essentially a lame duck, the second term, 16 months. that's a lot to deal with in 16 months. what's first on the agenda, do you think? >> first is gun control, and, obviously, this was before the connecticut shooting, but he did not talk about it in the first term. he didn't push it. he's going to be pushing that, pushing immigration, pushing climate change, but spending is not on his agenda, cutting spending. i think he was interested in 2011, almost got a deal with speaker john boehner on a grand bargain on entitlement reform, crafting a budget now. i don't think you're going to see major cuts in that. it's a significant shift. remember, obama said the deficit kept his awake in the first term. through his actions, you know, he's not pursuing a lot of cuts and changes to entitlements. liz: what is feasible for the president to get through with a window of 16 months? gun control? what do you think h
